Fram honored with new scholarship

Eugene Fram

The longest-serving current member of the RIT faculty is being honored with the creation of a scholarship in his name.

Eugene Fram, the J. Warren McClure Research Professor of Marketing, arrived at RIT in August 1957. He served as director of RIT’s Center for Management Study from 1968 to 1982, and helped establish the College of Business marketing department and international business program. He has received numerous awards, including the Eisenhart Award for Excellence in Teaching.

Fram often is called upon as a consultant by start-up companies, Fortune 500 firms, and not-for-profit organizations. He’s written or co-authored more than 100 articles and six books and is frequently quoted in the news media on a variety of business topics.

Fram also is involved in community service activities, most recently as co-chair of the board of the Alliance for Children and Families, a national organization.

“Gene stays in touch with hundreds of his former students, and has had such an influence on so many that we decided this scholarship was a fitting tribute,” says Thomas Hopkins, dean of the College of Business. “We believe many alumni will want to participate.”

The scholarship is expected to be awarded for the first time before the start of school this fall. People wishing to contribute should contact Mark Boylan, director of development for the College of Business, at 585-475-7477, or by e-mail at mcbdar@rit.edu.
